Students prepare for commencement ceremony with Graduation Fair

Graduating students at the OSU-Tulsa Graduation FairMelanie McClain doesn’t want to worry about anything when she receives her diploma during the OSU-Tulsa commencement ceremony. That’s why she’s attending OSU-Tulsa's Graduation Fair on Tuesday, March 27.

“My family and friends are looking forward to seeing me walk across that stage to receive my bachelor’s degree,” said McClain, sociology major and OSU-Tulsa staff member. “Attending the fair ensures that students like me get everything taken care of prior to graduation. It also provides firsthand knowledge regarding opportunities to further my education.”

McClain is one of hundreds of graduates who can prepare for graduation by attending the fair, which runs from 2:30-5:30 p.m. in the North Hall Lobby. The fair offers the opportunity to check graduation status with Enrollment Services and complete a reservation card for the ceremony.

Students can also purchase caps and gowns and other important graduation items, such as personalized announcements, class rings and diploma frames. OSU-Tulsa Career Services will be available to offer job search advice and the OSU Alumni Association will be on hand to answer questions about membership benefits. Graduate Student Services will also have information available about OSU graduate degree programs.

Graduation Fair attendees can register to win door prizes, which include a professionally-matted diploma frame and other OSU-Tulsa memorabilia.

OSU-Tulsa’s Graduation Ceremony is set for Monday, May 7 at the Pavilion at Expo Square. Visit the OSU-Tulsa Graduation website for more information.
